The day after Christmas
Monday, December 26, 2016      9 comments

Today is quite the day. We had a serious rain storm yesterday, yes Rain Storm complete with Thunder. It was still raining when I went to bed, and then the wind picked up. So strong that it sounded like a jet engine was just outside our window... Read more

Two things for which I am extremely grateful for this morning. This past weekend has been challenging. We received about 8-9" of new snow overnight Friday which Daisy thought was pretty fun at first, but as the day progressed and the sno... Read more

Ten years ago at this time I was in sunny Roanoke holding my very first grandchild and my ONLY granddaughter. It wasn't as cold in Minnesota as it is this year but it was 75 degrees and sunny in Roanoke - a real plus. ... Read more

I'd just like to say how grateful I am today that I do not have to go anywhere. Watching the news tonight, seeing all the people struggling to get from one point to another while the wind blows and the snow swirls so much that you can barely se... Read more

We MIGHT have a new hot water heater - I'm not sure. The guys came at 9:30 this morning. They were very nice - one was verrrry tall and the other was verrrry young. Of course, it will cost about $100 more than the estimate because of course, ... Read more

For those of you who have been by my side with this latest knee issue, I'm happy to say that I woke up this morning with the pain nearly gone. I say nearly because I always have pain in that knee to some degree, but I am actually walking normal... Read more

Some of you already know that I injured my right knee on Friday - somehow, although I have absolutely no idea when or how. I assume it happened while walking Daisy on Friday and perhaps it was so cold out that I just didn't feel the strain. A... Read more

It's finally come - the snow that will be here until Spring. The temps are in the low teens - single digits and below 0 coming in the extended forecast. It started snowing lightly just before we went to bed but didn't look like much. Ho... Read more

Thirty-four years ago my ex-husband and I moved into this home with 5 children - 2 that were only 38 days old. It wasn't my choice to move here but we had to move and I was too pregnant with twins to care. We had 3 bedrooms and a large open ro... Read more

We don't think about our knees when we are young. We run and jump and play and do all the fun things in the world that we want to do - our knees are just there to help us. I certainly never gave one bit of thought to what I was putting my knee... Read more
Winter Wonderland

I woke up this morning to snow - that light but wet snow that just sticks to everything. My backyard looks like a beautiful winter wonderland. The snow is on all the bushes and trees around, and we have a lot of them. Nature's decorating. ... Read more

So today has been quite the experience for me. We finally did it. My DH and I have been carrying around flip phones forever. His view - all we need phones for is to talk. I have to agree after getting myself a Samsung tablet a few months ago... Read more

On Wednesday Tom and I went to IKEA. I needed a new couch for my family room. It needs to pull out into a bed, but it can't be too big or too heavy. I also wanted to get a display case so I could finally pull out of storage my doll collection... Read more

I spent about 3 weeks getting ready for Thanksgiving this year - it's the first time I hosted for awhile. It's been a busy but rewarding couple of days. Brandon, Shelly & Annie arrived on Wednesday evening. Annie and Daisy were so happy t... Read more

This morning I pulled out all the jeans in my drawer. I decided it was time to try them on. To my great joy - 4 pair are now too big, and 3 more are wearable but not for long. The new jeans I bought this summer are actually too big for me now... Read more
